Oh man, what a DAY!!!!! I have been go-go-go all day long and its only 8:20 and I’m about to completely crash. First there was 1.5 hours of yoga, then I walked Mikan for 25 minutes along the water and then I unpacked and cleaned my room for 4 HOURS!!!!!!
(get ready to gag) Eeeewwwww messy room!!!!!
I had 6 years of boxes and crap piled up in the closet and it was quite the sweat busting experience. Whoever said cleaning wasn’t a workout obviously didn’t unpack and shelve all these books:
Ahhh beloved books! They have been packed away and stored for the past 6 years and today I unpacked them all and had to stack them up on my dresser because that was the only place they would all fit! I had to stack up to the ceiling to make them all work there and even though its totally messy, I sort of like having them ALL there near to me. Call me crazy, but I like sleeping with hundreds of books within a two foot radius. My books are my life! It took about 2 solid hours to unpack, climb up to the ceiling and get them all neatly up there but I feel so much better now!
I did take a quick snack break though—
A combo of greek yogurt (the same kind as I had yesterday but this one was plain) with about a fourth of a cup of muesli and topped with some raspberry preserves.
I continued to unpack until about 5:30 when I jumped in the shower to get ready for dinner. My mom made a delicious meal of marinated and grilled teriyaki kobe beef kabobs with risotto and a salad. I also had a glass of merlot with my meal. Obvi 😉
Cleaning must have worked up my appetite because I definitely cleaned my plate! :). After dinner Ryan and I went to Delite to get some froyo and I got a medium sized cup of candy cane with chocolate mint on top:
It was good but not great. I ate about 75% then had a few large spoonfuls of my mom’s vanilla with hot fudge and pecans 😉
Ryan and I hung out with the parents for a little while and watched some football and then he just left and I’m about to get in the bath then go to bed to read. Unpacking all my books was a great activity because I found a few I wanted to re-read!
And the book that got me hooked into yoga about 8 years ago—
Its such a beautiful book, honestly. I just love to flip the pages. I highly recommend this if you are just starting to get interested in the practice and want to learn more about it. Christy is amazing!
Have a great evening, folks. We can officially start the Christmas countdown!! =)
